T.I. 'Takers' interview with Gowhere Hip Hop

T.I.P. comin' live from the V.I.P. Showplace Icon Theaters in Chicago for the special Takers screening event. We caught up with T.I. to ask a couple of questions about the movie, in theaters everywhere August 27th. Namely, we asked about a memorable story on the set of Takers and what new challenge this role presented for him in his acting career. He eloquently described  how he had to make his character, Ghost, a likable one - something to definitely be on watch for when you see the movie. Tibs also asked about working with Kanye West as T.I. touched on his recent trip to the studio with Mr. West and the direction they are going in. A lot to look forward to with T.I. as Takers sees release on August 27th and the new album, King Uncaged, is currently slated for September 28th. 

As a bonus, we talked with the film's producers, Jason Geter (of Grand Hustle Records) and Will Packer, and got their perspective on a couple of Takers topics, if you will. We first asked Will about how the whole creative process behind the film even began. He elaborated about getting together with Jason and naturally, T.I., and then beginning to assemble a diverse and talented cast that also features Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Hayden Christensen, and even Chris Brown! Jason added a little bit about overcoming obstacles in producing his first movie, including becoming a father to his newborn child. Congrats! Big shout out to T.I., Will, and Jason for all their time and remember to check out Takers, in theaters August 27th! Enjoy!
